High school, Atlantic, Iowa

Primary tabs

The Atlantic High School was the second high school building in the town. The first high school was constructed in 1878, and a large addition was constructed in 1912. Population growth and the need for modern facilities necessitated the construction of a new high school. In July of 1935 the school board resolved to apply for a Public Works Administration (PWA) grant. There was a successful campaign for the new high school; in November a $160,000 bond issue was approved. Ground was broken in 1936, and the school was finished in May of 1937, opening in the fall of that year. Located at 1100 Linn Street, Atlantic, Cass County, Iowa. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Number 3772.
